Our Mission & History
USTA North Carolina, a not-for-profit organization, is the state affiliate of the United States Tennis Association in North Carolina. Formerly known as the North Carolina Tennis Association (NCTA), USTA North Carolina was founded in 1973 and since that time has focused on its singular mission: to promote and develop the game of tennis in North Carolina.
The NCTA administers a variety of programs statewide for players of all ages and ability levels. As a not-for-profit organization, the association invests 100% of its proceeds to promote and develop the growth of tennis in North Carolina. There are currently more than 29,000 USTA members residing in North Carolina, this includes over 6,000 juniors and 23,000 adults. A professional staff housed in Greensboro carries out the USTA North Carolina's daily operations, but policy is formed and some of the organization's work is executed via a Board and committee structure of volunteers.
